Each year, Manitoba Ag Days is the backdrop as retailers, manufacturers, dealers and entrepreneurs launch their top new products for the upcoming season. This year’s show will once again feature a full range of new products certain to gather a lot of attention from visitors looking for the latest in farming technology and products.
All new products are listed in the Ag Days Show Guide. All qualifying entries are judged and the Best New Product Award is presented at the show.
